Black Oak Bark

The bark is more blocky than other oaks. Red oaks have more streaky bark while White oaks have more flaky bark. Older Bur oak has blocky bark but its leaves are distinctive.

Black oak is more drought tolerant than Northern red oak and about the same as White oak.

A lot of regeneration after clear cutting are sprouts from stumps or damaged advance regeneration. Sprouts will grow fast because of the large root system they have to draw from.
